Hello folks,WHAT: I am trying to work out what it would take and whether it is feasible to put a sensor like the Kinect or PrimeSense variant onto an Arducopter.WHY: Need a low cost quadrocopter AI…Continue
"The Pixhawk hardware is platform agnostic. ETH was using off the shelf quads for the SLAM projects and installing their own electronics. The off the shelf quads were still many thousands of dollars.
ETH had a group buy on Pixhawk…"
"I don't think it should be too difficult to get your project flying. The flight stability is no problem, and as long as you keep the weight down it's shouldn't be hard.
Here's how I would do your project... I'd…"
Hello folks,WHAT: I am trying to work out what it would take and whether it is feasible to put a sensor like the Kinect or PrimeSense variant onto an Arducopter.WHY: Need a low cost quadrocopter AI research platform for Machine Learning, Semantic Environments and VisionI know similar topics have been posted @ DIYDrones many times and appreciate that in order to do anything like SLAM + ROS would require extra horsepower/extra board.What I haven't managed to find is a solution which addresses…See More
I was wondering if it is possible to order assembled Cheetah or other quadrocopter kits (rough cost estimate?) at this time or if you plan to make one available later in the future?
I'm glad I found out about this meet just in time. Although I'm new to this forum, flying and UAV specific hardware, I have a long standing interest in autonomous drones and have done a fair bit of experimenting in the…"
I am a software developer with a background in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning.
I also have a number of interests across the scientific spectrum including Synthetic Biology, Computational Neuroscience,Quantum Computing and Nonlinear Dynamical Systems.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I would like to explore and asses the potential of the autonomous quadrocopter platform for practical real world applications, indoor or outdoor, in problem domains including transportation, construction, assisting the elderly at home. As standalone units or part of a constellation, problem specific architecture.
I'm also quite interested in the commercialization of UAVs, industry standards and infrastructure needed to make UAV apps widespread and usefull.
